Statement of reasons

This notice, which comes into force on the day after its notification in the Gazette and expires on 31 October 2012, exempts Goodman (NZ) Limited (GNZ) from certain provisions of the Securities Regulations 1983 (the Regulations), subject to conditions, in respect of offers of units in the Goodman Property Trust.

The exemptions entitle GNZ to exclude some commercially sensitive information from the copies of supplemental letters from various banks that are attached to the registered prospectus.

The Securities Commission considers that it is appropriate to grant the exemptions because—

  • the exemptions from regulation 7(1)(a) of the Regulations and from clause 17(c) of Schedule 3A of the Regulations meet the criteria stated in the Commission's Exemption Policy Note for Applications to Exclude Commercially Sensitive Information from Material Contracts. (The Exemption Policy Note can be viewed on the Commission's website at www.seccom.govt.nz/notices/exemption-policy.shtml):

  • the detriment to the commercial interests of GNZ by the disclosure of the excluded provisions would outweigh any benefit to prospective investors from their disclosure:

  • directors of GNZ must warrant that the non-disclosure of the excluded provisions does not make the relevant prospectus misleading in any material particular by a failure to refer, or give proper emphasis, to any adverse circumstances:

  • the prospectus must state that information has been deleted from the contracts in question, the reasons why that information has been deleted, and the general nature of the material information that has been deleted.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 10 November 2007.

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Securities Act (Goodman (NZ) Limited) Exemption Notice 2007. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the notice as at 1 November 2012, as specified in the list of amendments at the end of these notes.

    Relevant provisions of any amending enactments that contain transitional, savings, or application provisions that cannot be compiled in the reprint are also included, after the principal enactment, in chronological order. For more information, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/reprints/ .

2 Status of reprints
  • Under section 16D of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, reprints are presumed to correctly state, as at the date of the reprint, the law enacted by the principal enactment and by the amendments to that enactment. This presumption applies even though editorial changes authorised by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 have been made in the reprint.

    This presumption may be rebutted by producing the official volumes of statutes or statutory regulations in which the principal enactment and its amendments are contained.

3 How reprints are prepared
  • A number of editorial conventions are followed in the preparation of reprints. For example, the enacting words are not included in Acts, and provisions that are repealed or revoked are omitted. For a detailed list of the editorial conventions, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/editorial-conventions/ or Part 8 of the Tables of New Zealand Acts and Ordinances and Statutory Regulations and Deemed Regulations in Force.

4 Changes made under section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989
  • Section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 authorises the making of editorial changes in a reprint as set out in sections 17D and 17E of that Act so that, to the extent permitted, the format and style of the reprinted enactment is consistent with current legislative drafting practice. Changes that would alter the effect of the legislation are not permitted.

    A new format of legislation was introduced on 1 January 2000. Changes to legislative drafting style have also been made since 1997, and are ongoing. To the extent permitted by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, all legislation reprinted after 1 January 2000 is in the new format for legislation and reflects current drafting practice at the time of the reprint.

    In outline, the editorial changes made in reprints under the authority of section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 are set out below, and they have been applied, where relevant, in the preparation of this reprint:

    • omission of unnecessary referential words (such as of this section and of this Act)

    • typeface and type size (Times Roman, generally in 11.5 point)

    • layout of provisions, including:

      • indentation

      • position of section headings (eg, the number and heading now appear above the section)

    • format of definitions (eg, the defined term now appears in bold type, without quotation marks)

    • format of dates (eg, a date formerly expressed as the 1st day of January 1999 is now expressed as 1 January 1999)

    • position of the date of assent (it now appears on the front page of each Act)

    • punctuation (eg, colons are not used after definitions)

    • Parts numbered with roman numerals are replaced with arabic numerals, and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • case and appearance of letters and words, including:

      • format of headings (eg, headings where each word formerly appeared with an initial capital letter followed by small capital letters are amended so that the heading appears in bold, with only the first word (and any proper nouns) appearing with an initial capital letter)

      • small capital letters in section and subsection references are now capital letters

    • schedules are renumbered (eg, Schedule 1 replaces First Schedule), and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • running heads (the information that appears at the top of each page)

    • format of two-column schedules of consequential amendments, and schedules of repeals (eg, they are rearranged into alphabetical order, rather than chronological).
